Avid 0.15EC is an emulsifiable concentrate containing 0.15 lb. abamectin/gal. which, when mixed with water, will control leafminers and mites and suppress whiteflies, thrips, and aphids on ornamentals.
Mix with water and apply as a foliar spray to obtain uniform coverage. For mites, apply when mites first appear and repeat as necessary to maintain control. For leafminers, apply as needed and repeat at 7-day intervals or as necessary to maintain control.
For suppression of aphids, thrips, and whiteflies, apply when young, immature stages of these pests are first observed and repeat every 7 days for 2 or 3 weeks. After which time, rotate to other products that have different modes of action than Avid 0.15 EC for at least 2-3 weeks. Refer to the Resistance Management section for additional comments on rotation. Aphids, thrips, and whiteflies are killed by direct contact with the Avid 0.15 EC spray.
Residual control of pests may be enhanced with the addition of a horticultural spray oil at 0.5 to 1.0% of the spray volume on field-grown woody ornamentals, landscape plants, and Christmas trees. Repeat application as necessary, but no sooner than 7 days to maintain control. Some plants are sensitive to oils and so without prior experience the user should spray a small number of plants and observe plants for 2 weeks before spraying the remaining plants. Excessive cold or warm temperatures may increase the chance of plant damage following application with oils.
Avid 0.15 Miticide / Insecticide Features:
- Rainfast within hours of application, offering outdoor application flexibility
- Leaves no unsightly residue on plants
- Formulated for easly application with standard equipment

I have been fighting spider mites for six months, not able to win - just stay even. Finally I went nuclear (Avid) on the little bastids, and they're all in spider heaven now. This stuff seems expensive - but it is SO concentrated that this $100 bottle will last a looooong time. I use 3 drops in 500cc of water in a spray bottle. Used once.

I believe you can avoid pests with preventive measures, but sometimes they just appear. In my case I introduced some plants from another garden. I had what I believed to be broad mites. I used avid every 3rd day for 4 applications and they were gone.

Bye bye mites
By Craig in Vancouver, Wa on 09/09/2015
On a suggestion from a friend, I was told that my issue with Russett mites would be quelled with one application of the avid miticide. Once I bit the bullet on the cost, (@$15/oz.) I realized that within hours I had stopped 80% of my infestation. A second application @ 2 weeks later yielded near 100% extermination of those microscopic bastards and I've been good since... *A full tyvek suit, respirator and eye protection is essential to do a proper application!!
By Alex in Sharon on 08/20/2016
Good stuff. Spider mites gone in a few days after treatment. My brugmansia looks healthy now. During treatment long sleeve shirt and rubber gloves used as recommended. No problem.

Pricey...but the application rate is very low, only 1ml/gal. Used imidicloprid and fish oil with negative results. Avid showed promise in less than 1 week.

QCan I use Avid 0.15 EC Miticide Insecticide on my mattress and on the underside of my couch and chair and on my carpets?
